A Feast of Chickens

Dinner is get out those skillets, and let's get cooking!

Last week we showed you what to do with a dragon egg when things don't turn out as planned. I know, you sat in fire all night, and that egg just didn't want to hatch into a baby dragon. Oh well... at least there's guacamole! 

But with dinner coming, you'll need something to do with that guacamole that's more than just an appetizer. For that we have delicious chicken breast marinated in lime, jalapeño, and cilantro and topped with guacamole. This delicious meal will make you forget that dragon egg ever failed to hatch.

Chicken Breast with Guacamole Topping Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes, Marinade time: 2-4 hours, Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2-4


2 Boneless chicken breasts
1/2 Cup of lime juice or juice from 3 to 4 fresh limes
20 Cilantro leaves 
1 Medium sized jalapeño finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil

Step 1: Thaw the chicken and place it in a ziploc bag. Add in olive oil, lime juice, cilantro leaves, and chopped jalapeño. Close the bag and shakes it so that the marinade fully covers the chicken. Then open the bag and reseal it so that the air is out of the bag. Place bag in the fridge for at least 2-4 hours. I find it's best if you let the chicken marinade over night, or if you put it in the fridge first thing in the morning and let it marinade until dinner time.

Step 2: Heat a skillet on medium heat. Remove chicken breasts from the ziploc bag and place them in the skillet. Cook each side of the chicken breast for five minutes. Remove from heat and slice the breast into strips. Place the strips back in the skillet and cook until brown on both sides. Cooking the strips won't take longer than five minutes.

Step 3: Prepare our delicious guacamole recipe, which you can find here. Serve with guacamole on top of the chicken. Make sure you have your favorite chips around for the leftover guacamole!
